Just finishing up a contract with Gener8 doing stereoscopic conversion of Ghost Rider 2, which so far looks pretty good. I now have some official NukeX 6 experience under my belt. Sigraph is also in town and I will be there on Thurs.

I am currently seeking new contracts, My recent activity with Stargate Digital has come to a stop since the Vancouver studio has shut down for 2 months. I have finally completed my written shot breakdown and have added a download link to the breakdown reel. I will also be getting back to using Nuke and learning as much as I can of it.

Well, I guess it has been a year since I have put in an update here, but I have been contracting for Stargate Studios non stop and worked on many shows since Defying Gravity wrapped. We are now just wrapping Haven, a few episodes in on Human Target, and ocasionally doing driving comps for Life unexpected. In my time with Stargate I have worked on Heroes, Greys Anatomy, Greek, Trauma, Monk, the Gates, Parent Hood, a few pilots and a feature called "Big Bang". I may have some slow time coming up to update a demo with some new shots.
